The Hockaday School
The Hockaday School was founded in 1913 by Miss Ela Hockaday to provide a college preparatory education for girls in Dallas, Texas.
Believing in the limitless potential of girls, Hockaday develops resilient, confident women who are educated and inspired to lead lives of purpose and impact.
The Hockaday School prepares girls of strong potential in the prekindergarten through 12th grades to assume positions of responsibility and leadership in a rapidly changing world by giving them a foundation grounded on the traditional four cornerstones: character, courtesy, scholarship, and athletics.
Within the context of an outstanding academic environment, The Hockaday School's goals are to foster a community of concern and friendship, to instill in every girl a love of learning and an understanding of herself and the ethical principles which guide her life, and to develop an appreciation of excellence in all its forms with a commitment to what is right and good.
